Hi All,

I created a small image of Debian Buster/Sid PPC64 today. I recommend to use it if you have any problems with Adrian's ISOs. Please increase the partition with GParted after you copied the image to an empty partition. I had to decrease the partition a little bit and after that I was able to increase the partition.

Download: debian-9.0-ppc64.img

root (password "amigaone")
amigaone (password "amigaone")

First steps

  1. Configure your network device with dhclient
  2. Check the network device with ip a
  3. Update the package index with apt-get update
  4. Install Xorg with apt-get install xorg
  5. After that you could install the MATE desktop with apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-extras
  6. Then you could install a display manager for example "lightdm" with apt-get install lightdm
  7. Afterwards reboot your AmigaOne

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.
